I don't think Sway will end up MS PP - both of them will co-exist. Many people get used to PP and its fruitful ways of making beatiful presentations. Furthermore, the end user wants not only the convenience but also the ability to control.

Re: the end of PowerPoint?
Could be. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but if it's as easy and rich as advertised, a lot of people would might prefer Sway for their general presentation needs. Seems like a good way for students to make attractive interactive projects that can be shared with other students.

the end of PowerPoint?
Will Sway displace PowerPoint as the app people love to hate?
